Drink Heavily, Go Green

Nancy Pelosi could not resist the urge to blame the current mess on the Repuklicans and tout the greatness of Democrap demi-god Bill Clinton. As such, the bail out of the economy… bailed out and nothing got done. How can we put things in perspective?

If you had purchased $1,000 of Delta Air Lines (DAL) stock one year ago, you would have about $49 left. With Fannie Mae (FNM), you would have around $2.50 left of the original $1,000. With AIG, you would have much less than $15 left. But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drunk all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have $214 cash. Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.
